Leo Tolstoy

An elegant Google Doodle for the, er, 186th birthday of Leo Tolstoy, who apart from a comet in War And Peace was mainly interested in the culture around him, hard to beat if you want a really deep view of Imperial Russia and its mores. Imagine how many social rules a modern time traveller (let alone a modern British time traveller!) could accidentally break in one grand ball.

Fracture In Time

A campaign idea from No Ordinary Obsession. Comes with three different hooks for the same setting.

We come for your... market share.

An idea caused by, of all things, a toothpaste advert: It shows a ridiculously super high tech facility where people in white Star Trek style uniforms show their latest innovation to a startled modern-day dentist.

So, idea...

Aliens or time travellers come here to... monopolise something totally mundane with their advanced science. And our heroes are completely baffled as to why they’d put in so much effort.

Until their competitors arrive...

The Second World War

75 years ago, Britain declared war with Germany. 25 years and five weeks after the time before.

Doctor Who has covered the Second World War metaphorically since nearly the beginning - the Daleks are tinpot Hitlers and their Invasion of Earth looked a lot like both the Blitz and the French Resistance - and literally here and there, especially more recently, as it becomes history rather than living history.
